Posted by Worldouristattractions On 02:50 No comments

The best way to observe the Grand Canal in Venice is by boat. While you can appoint a water taxi, the slower and cheaper vaporetto Number 1 is a good option. The Grand Canal is over 2 miles long and skin three bridges.

The part of the Grand Canal between the train position and the Rialto Bridge offers beautiful views of century-old palaces. Museums in this area comprise the Natural History Museum, International Gallery of current Art and the Giorgio Franchetti collection.

From Rialto to the Accademia bridge, you will travel times of yore the lively Rialto area, Riva del Vin, Ca' Rezzonico and the Accademia galleries.

The last section of the canal, from the Accademia bridge to San Marco, is quite theatrical where Santa Maria della Salute towers above the mouth of the canal with its white Baroque facade.
